Default first time drying hops??????

i have a pretty bumper crop...

the home brewers garden and the homegrown hops books i have tell you the settings and time roughly required for a full drying in a dehydrator, but is there a weight over volume calc for the correct dry % weight verus green weight?

any help would be great

Aim for 15-20%, as it's AA% dependent.
